We are delighted to have Panos Mekras advise the foundation on implementing our blockchain solutions with entities pioneering XRPL applications.
In addition to increasing integration opportunities with projects building on XRPL, Panos will also help reduce the barriers of Inheriti® mass adoption by educating his audiences and influential networks with the necessary tools provided by Safe Haven.
About Panos Mekras
Predominately interested in the finance sector, Panos studied at the University of Macedonia to achieve his Accounting and Finance bachelor’s degree.

Panos advises multiple companies and cryptocurrency projects, with a main focus on the XRP Ledger.

Panos Featured Inheriti® within his Book!
All of Panos’ knowledge gathered while working within the Web3 space was compiled to provide a general understanding for the crypto illiterate – he has been collaborating with crypto entities since 2016.
This book is a comprehensive guide that will help you understand everything you need to know about the crypto economy. From what is money and how the banking system works to the technical information of how a blockchain network operates and how you can invest or use many different applications in the crypto world.
– Panos Mekras
To teach newcomers how to secure their private data and ensure inheritance or personal backup plans are established properly, Panos featured the only patented and truly decentralized platform available – the flagship product of Safe Haven, Inheriti®.
Below is an image of a page that defines Safe Haven’s flagship product within Panos’ book, “Understanding the Crypto Economy: A Full Guide for Beginners about Blockchain, Crypto, Web3, DeFi, NFTs.”
Safe Haven Blockchain Advisors
As the Safe Haven product suite migrates to new blockchains, the foundation will seek advisors that contain and hone the networking skills required for product integrations to run smoothly – appointing blockchain advisors will enable services to be offered to new communities and businesses in an efficient manner.
The team of Safe Haven thanks Panos Mekras for his efforts put forth and are proud to welcome him as our first XRPL Blockchain Advisor!
